These are the working areas we had at #WikiDev16
- **Content format** (T119022) - This is about the format of our data, with a primary emphasis on the future of Wikitext & markup (or possibly, the future of eliminating it). The central problem in this area: "how do we make manipulating our data easier and more useful" (both for humans and computers)
- ** Content access and APIs ** (T119029) - this is about getting our data in-and-out of the system (e.g. rest.wikimedia.org). The central problem in this area: "how do we make accessing and distributing our data easier and more useful?"
- **Collaboration** (T119030) - this is about how we work together. Central problem: "how do we scale editing our code up to populations similar to editing our projects, proportionally increasing our positive impact and productivity?"
- **Software engineering** (T119032) - this is about building and delivering high quality code. Central problem: "how do we make software development more logical and obvious for all Wikimedia contributors, while simultaneously making Wikimedia software more useful and reliable for the Wikimedia sites?"
- **User interface presentation** (T119162) - improving our user interactions. Central problem: "How to we make our software beautiful and joyful to use?"
As suggested in T119018: these working areas may persist beyond WikiDev '16. T123606 suggests a mechanism for doing so. Let's establish if they are actually going to.
